Get to Know the Life and Works of Florence Nightingale - The Lady with the Lamp.
The photo was taken in 1910. It’s the last photograph taken of Florence Nightingale. (It's rare: she was reluctant throughout her life to be photographed.) It shows 90 year old Florence in her bedroom at her home in London. The photo was taken by Lizzie Caswall Smith. On the back of the photo Smith wrote, “Taken just before she died, house near Park Lane. The only photograph I ever took out of studio. I shall never forget the experience.”
Anna Caroline Maxwell, Founder of the Army Nurse Corps – (1851 to 1929) – Known as the American Florence Nightingale, bravely cared for wounded men, improved sanitary conditions of military hospitals, and trained nurses for care during the Spanish-American War. Her intelligence and experience from years in the nursing profession equipped Maxwell for the enormous task during this chaotic time.
